The Challenge #29

April 6, 2015

Hi there, blog friends!  I am guest creating at The Challenge blog this month, and today marks the first challenge in April!

I used some new products from the My Mind's Eye "On Trend" collection in conjunction with this fun & simple sketch!  This card isn't very stamp oriented or artistic in nature...I just let the scrapbooking product speak for itself.  :)  Here is what came of it:
  1. Make A2 card from floral patterned paper.
  2. Cut a strip of gold foil confetti paper & adhered to the left side.
  3. Zig-zag stitch along the seam of the two papers.
  4. Adhere the journal card to the front with foam dots.
  5. Tie a double bow from twine, thread through a chipboard button & add to the front.
  6. Layer a sentiment strip to the front with dimensional adhesive.
  7. Trim the prongs off two brads & embellish the front with them to finish.


Thanks for checking out my card for this week!  I hope you will join in on the fun and create with this super fun sketch!  Have a happy Monday!

Until later,
